I'm trying to find some good resources on the Berry family from this area. They're all over the place in the late 1700s and early 1800s - it's hard to believe that no one has done research on the family from this area.

I'm particularly interested in a Rachel Berry. I'm trying to determine her parents or maybe even a guess if anyone wants to take a shot.

These are the facts that I know to be true - Rachel Berry, was born about abt. 1784 and died on 27 Dec 1834 in Strafford, New Hampshire. She married James Demeritt and had two children, Betsey and Isaac T. Demeritt. They lived with James' parents, Robert and Deborah (Twombly) Demeritt on Second Crown Point Road near Strafford corner 1780 - 1830. The Berrys were all over this place!

The one's that I am particularly suspect of are James Berry, William Berry and Benjamin Berry - all from the Barrington NH area.
